A critically-acclaimed examination of Bob Dylan's lyrics as poetry, through the prism of the 7 Deadly Sins.

'I consider myself a poet first and a musician second'
'It ain't the melodies that're important man, it's the words'

There is no shortage of books about Bob Dylan. This one, however, is unique in its approach and the virtuosity of its execution.

Ricks examines Dylan's songs through the biblical concepts of the seven deadly Sins, the four cardinal Virtues and the three Heavenly Graces. He does so with what one critic has described as 'an ultimately irresistible combination of laser-like intelligence with a fan's exuberant idolatry'.
